John PrineTaking A Walk

A man came to our house I believe it was yesterday I would have invited him in But I didn't have a lot to say His anticipation of me opening the door Outweighed my apprehension as it never had before And drove my concentration Right through that hardwood floor Oo-oo a-ha I'm taking a walk I'm going outside I'm taking a walk I'm just getting by There's a girl in the white house I don't even know her name Her disheveled appearance Speaks volumes of shame It's an embarrassing situation But a situation just the same The way she walks on others And never takes the blame Upsets my constitution Beyond it's mortal frame Oo-oo a-ha I'm taking a walk I'm going outside I'm watching the birds I'm just getting by Found a card in the pocket Of my worn out overalls From a girl in Cedar Rapids Now residing in Idaho Falls I wish you could have been there When she opened up the door And looked me in the face Like she never did before I felt about as welcome As a Wal-Mart Superstore 0o-oo - a-ha I'm taking a walk I'm going outside I'm taking a walk I don't need a ride I'm watching the birds Flying so high
